Thread: FLATLINER

  1. #1

    Default FLATLINER *update*

    THIS HERES MY PROJECT NAMED FLATLINER......

    i wanted you guys on here to know somewhat the history and shyt I've been through.

    so my grandmother dies.........DEC. 08'......and my mother inherits a sweet looking 1987 celica st.....with 37,342 miles (original)........brings it all the way back here to Oregon from Ohio.

    sry don't have any pics from then......wasn't much of a picture taker....

    so my mom gives me the car with 42,203 miles....just gives me IT!.....im like sweet......

    just picture this......no scrapes and no rust..(except on one fender) and pretty straight.

    i go to Salem one night and i blew the head gasket and cracked the head....messed up rite....so after 1700 dollars work....(didn't have time myself and also the know how)....

    so shes running just fine......just fine............till i look down to make sure my CD is gonna make it into the slot.


    BOOM!


    then this.................!!!!



    terrible huh!....i was only doing about 25-30 mph, totaled for the damage was about 7,000.

    BUT THE MOTOR WAS UNDAMAGED.

    so i went home and went to craigslist and almost immediately i see the same year and color...also and auto only difference was it was a gt and a hatch........so i went out the next day and took a look to see how similar they really were........

    so i paid 400 bucks for a running gt...needed a couple of things...like a rad and a water pump......i ran it on the freeway and maintained it for about three exits before blowing the rad to pieces..(had small crack).

    so i swapped in the motor as soon as i got it home...(sry no pics)....and i now have 70,500 miles on the body.............i swapped everything from the suspension to the interior ...lower dash and carpet. i should've kept a bunch more stuff but i didn't have the room.







    ive done some more mods like add a cold air intake.. and have now done the starter mod thingy.


    got some mms 17inch wheels with kumo tires for 450 from a friend.


    some shots before any exterior modding (besides wheels)


    was gonna install the trd spoiler from the 7th gens but i really didnt like the look so i went with a factory one instead....


    had to add some stereo equipment of course


    painted the grill black,


    installed my factory spoiler (which is a different color)



    have installed my custom shorty antenna


    tinted the windows limo (5%) on all but the windshield which was done at 35%


    added 25mm spacers on her

    without


    with

    got some new tread on her



    upgraded to all black interior from a gts i had bought.


    upgraded my lights to ebay crappers with city lights...lol....which now rest back in the box they came waiting......


    went ahead and got some reverse white gauges with blue l.e.d.'s



    was thinking of adding some 5th gen mirrors but something just says wrong for this car.


    added a din compartment under my radio.


    added a blue l.e.d. in my keyring loop


    added my front marker deletes, that i got from rickstar22
    -pic added later-


    have rear taillight vents coming as well as front euro corners.

    heres some recent shots




    so thats it for rite now.

    Did you swap the gauge cluster to the new car?

    Don't like the spoiler... do those lil' legs that face inward come off? Maybe if you can remove those bottom legs and just have it go 90 degrees from the body it would look decent (sort of like how the SRT4 or EVO wings are).

    Otherwise that bish is CLEAN.

    thanx guys...i do try to keep her clean....i wash/wax her at least twice a week sometimes....im still on the fence about that spoiler....i like it but then some days i don't.......i think it would look better when its painted the color of the car...as it sits now its primered and that been said it sticks out somewhat.



    i got a quote on the two dents i have on her for 150...since i don't now how to do bodywork. i really wanna learn tho.......but shes my DD and i cant have her down for any amount of time rite now.

    apply the alltrac body-kit
    install the coil-overs with camber bolts (alignment)
    new rubber all around
    obtain all new trimming around the windows
    apply new seals all around
    re-route the batt to the rear
    fix all the dents with PDR
    shave the door handles, antenna, gas door, rear wiper, emblems,side moldings, rear wiper nozzle.

    new rubber all around,yes
    obtain all new trimming around the windows, yes
    apply new seals all around, yes

    shave the door handles, antenna, gas door, rear wiper, emblems,side moldings, rear wiper nozzle., no its not a mini truck
    primer the entire car.........and then paint it , seems like the current paint is in great shape

    loved the reply man.....but im still gonna shave everything, except the gas door........i love a clean smooth look.......and i fucking really am digging that paint.



    oh heres a couple of pics of what i found at the local yard today.





    im not sure if this was a dealer item or its just aftermarket.....i ruined it tho....when i was cleaning it up the letters started to fall apart so i just took them all the way off.......not sure if ill keep this......not digging it when the lights are down.






    this was the best find out of everything.......it has the original decals still in 100% shape.....not faded or peeled like most of them are.....the spoiler was intact with all three pieces ...... funny thing was this paint color is grey but the car it was on was black........

    i think this one is very rare due to it saying GT not GT-S like almost everyone ive seen.......is this rite somewhat?

    i dont think ill keep this spoiler tho.....might sell it due to i wouldnt want to paint over the decals. what do u think?

    that oem spoiler is the shiznit, take it to someone who cuts vinyl and get them to cut you some new decals to match; then take off the originals, sand and paint spoiler, and put on the new decals = done!

    and that bra will kill your paint beneath it

    Yeah the GT thing isn't that rare.

    http://fourthgenceli.celicatech.com/rearangle.jpg

    There's my old one..

    I wouldn't shave the handles & all that stuff. There's posts on how to remove the stock antenna and use a s2000 antenna. Give that a glance, makes it a lil' cleaner. I'd keep the rear wash nozzle, but I'm in AZ where we get dust storms like no other & I need to wash my rear window frequently


    I'm with Joe.. don't shave the handles. I installed poppers on the old celica and it epiclly failed. Either the actuator would not release fully, or didn't have enough pulling power to pop the latches. If you don't like the door handles, why don't you paint them to match the body?

    And yes..OEM gen4 liftback spoiler > all others.

    i knew that it wasnt THAT rare it was just that i have never seen one for the gt's but always for the gt-s's.......but hey they are in good shape and ill be keeping this spoiler......but i really wanna shave the door handles.....im gonna have them professionally installed so if something goes wrong...back to the shop. a buddy of mine has them done and he has no problems and hes had them over 3 years.

    Highly advise agains that. It's split in 3 parts, left right & center. If it's all 1 piece, whenever you shut the hatch you run the risk of cracking/breaking it off.
